Can today’s big industrial giants become agile enough to succeed in today’s quicksilver marketplace in which power has shifted from sellers to buyers and customers can insist on “better, cheaper, smaller and quicker” along with “more reliable, convenient and personalized”?

"Even after a formal evaluation process, the likelihood that a purchase will not be made jumps tenfold when the solution recommended is not aligned to company's goals and direction. This is frequently the case with projects and purchases that are instigated by lower levels of an organization as they bubble up the chain of command for review. There is not a compelling business case to drive the purchase forward so it never garners senior level support."

"Each year, billion of dollars are spent on management consultants by organizations seeking advice – one estimate for 1996 was $US 43 billions. But that advice is seldom implemented."

The latest wit, wonder, and wisdom from Sir Ken Robinson.
This is another of his brilliant Ted Talks that you might want to consider as a "not to be missed".
The question in my mind is this...how many of these same concepts apply to adult learning as well?

As a sales leader, if you are promoting your team's win stories, that's nice.
However, if you have the wisdom and courage to help your teams learn the vital lessons contained in their losses, they (and you) will benefit even more.
This terrific article by Don Peppers explains why.

Having read ten of the eighteen books on +Stephen Denning's list, I can confirm that this is indeed a powerful list of thought leadership for those who want to escape the death grip of the industrial age and learn how to flourish in The Creative Economy.

"Where we haven't transformed rapidly enough, we struggled," Rometty said in the video published on IBM's internal website, reviewed by the newspaper. "We have to step up with that and deal with that, and that is on all levels."

“Often the culture of organizations inhibits creativity, because to be creative requires certain things. It requires you to take risks, and if people are worried that doing something unusual will prejudice their progress through the organization, they’ll step back. The issues are partly conceptual – misunderstandings about what this is and why it matters – and they’re partly cultural. If organizations don’t understand the dynamics of the creative process, they’ll wish for innovation to happen when the conditions for it to flourish don’t exist.” ~ Sir Ken Robinson

"So I got to thinking that perhaps there was an additional strategy to avoid getting punished by a brutally cost-oriented buyer: Focus on doing business with customers that have enlightened procurement departments in the first place. Find good customers to sell to." ~ +Don Peppers

"A creative, social culture is different. It is about loose couplings and modularity, about interdependent people and interdependent tasks. Two people/tasks are interdependent if they affect each another mutually and in parallel. Interdependent tasks call for peer-level responsiveness and coordination by mutual adjustments, not coordination by an outside party such as a manager." ~ +Esko Kilpi

"What’s interesting about this analogy is that today the strength of both these evolutionary forces – innovation and customer preference – are increasing at the same time. In essence, competition’s game clock is speeding up before our very eyes." ~ +Don Peppers

"Good storytelling is particularly important when introducing a complex and potentially disruptive offering in the marketplace whose value is not well understood. It’s a good way of explaining what the new innovation is all about in as simple a way as possible." ~ Irving Wladawsky-Berger

"Enterprises which have until now been employing a patchwork approach to enterprise collaboration tools may need to reimagine their approach from the ground up. Making the transition will require a changes to processes, technology and business culture."

"There’s no spirit in companies anymore because there’s no spirit in the people who work for these companies. Too many companies have been far too successful at creating a culture and system that zaps people’s energy and spirit."

"Every middle-class job today is being pulled up, out or down faster than ever. That is, it either requires more skill or can be done by more people around the world or is being buried — made obsolete — faster than ever. Which is why the goal of education today, argues Wagner, should not be to make every child “college ready” but “innovation ready” — ready to add value to whatever they do." ~ Thomas Friedman

"Formal training can help people develop a specific skill or knowledge set, but as the pace of change escalates, it becomes increasingly difficult to predict what skills people will need, and the half-life of training gets shorter and shorter. Regardless of a training program’s effectiveness, helping people learn faster in their everyday work environments provides added benefit." ~ +John Hagel

"Because new technologies connect the human race more tightly than ever before,relationships are more important than ever, also – not just relationships between a business and its customers, but relationships among the people working at a business, among the contributors to solving a problem, among the connections in a social network, or among the members of our society at large." ~ +Don Peppers
